We are celebrating LGBT Pride by attending the Pride Festival and then going to a nearby gastropub 🏳️‍🌈 ! Let's start by attending the Pride Fest, meeting at the corner of 6th & Laurel in Balboa Park at 11:30AM and then going into the festival to see fellow member, Carlos' band SkyTerra perform at 1:00.

Tickets to the Pride Festival (valid both Saturday and Sunday) can be purchased via https://sdpride.org/festival/

Afterwards, we will meet at The Corner Drafthouse, located at 495 Laurel Street, 92101 at 2:00PM for a discussion on the various terms associated with LGBTQIA.

We will utilize the following questions to guide our conversation:

1) Is sexuality a spectrum and not a simple gay/straight binary?
2) What advancements are still necessary in order to achieve true equality when it comes to LGBT issues?
3) If LGBTQIA includes everything except for "basic vanilla heterosexuality" are labels still necessary?
4) What privileges come with being heterosexual? Does being homosexual have similar privileges?

In preparation for the discussion, please watch this short video:
